Demolition and foundation repair has begun on North Mangum St in Durham! The property was built in the early 1900’s, when there were few regulations regarding construction, and was built without foundation footers. A footer is integral to supporting your home and is what carries the weight of the structure. We will be removing the old foundation and bringing it up to modern building codes. The pictures below show where the brick foundation wall has buckled and failed. While we’re in the process of rebuilding this foundation, we will take advantage of the situation and expand the rear of this diamond in the rough adding an additional 10 feet to the rear of the house.
